The Florida Highwaymen are a group of African American painters from Fort Pierce, Florida area, who produced paintings of Florida landscapes beginning in the late 1950’s. They traveled the backroads of Florida during a pivotal time when segregation kept them from displaying their work in galleries and had them, instead, peddling stacks of their paintings to shop owners, residents and tourists alike, door-to-door, at times selling from the trunks of their cars on A1A and US1. Boynton Beach featured in their travels and their original art can be seen on the walls of many local businesses such as Oyer, Macoviak and Associates Insurance Agency, Scobee-Combs-Bowden Funeral Home, the Boynton Woman’s Club and in our local Banks.
